Publisher info

Married and living in the glorious City of Bath, UK. I have enjoyed successful careers as a schoolmaster, a project manager, a management consultant and an entrepreneur over the years. I even trained as an accountant at one time! My latest career move is towards internet-based publishing which is fascinating me.

One of my mottos is to learn something new every day. I actively seek out new skills and ideas to use in my work. Among other things, it can make it more interesting for both me and my clients.

After that, one of my clearly defined values is to enjoy what I do and I relish anything that makes me laugh. I particularly enjoy the clever American comedies and the wry British sense of humour, which I believe is reflected in the books I have published.
